    Default Opening with a compliment: yes or no?

    I know that there are no final answers for these kind of questions, but I'd like to hear some opinions.

    What do you think about opening -or saying it shortly after- with a compliment like, for example, the PUA's dreaded but very honest "Hi, I think you look amazing" or "Hi, I like your eyes" or even "Hi, I love the way you dance".

    I think it can be refreshingly honest at times, but do you think it's at high danger of putting you as the chaser and her as the prize?

    What's your opinion/experience?

    I agree with @topgunningit.... The purpose of working on your pick up game is to set yourself apart from other guys. Saying something like this will most likely (not all the time) land you in the boring category and girls will ignore it.

    HOWEVER...if you can find something SPECIFIC about her outfit then I usually go for it because most guys will be very general and say something like, "hey, you're really pretty blah blah blah"

    Instead say something like:

    "Wow the lapels on your jacket look really great, what kind are they"

    Not only will this impress a women but it gives her a line that she most likely hasn't heard before. Play around with different things but try to stay away from what other guys do.
    "She'll forgive you for being a man...but she WON'T forgive you for being a p*ssy"
